We need to go back to October of last year, because when Mohamed Salah are immortal in their own country. The 25-year-old ‘butterfly’ of the Reds, this season above our compatriot Kevin De Bruyne was elected the best player of the Premier League, made when with two goals (including a penalty) in the Borg El Arabstadion of Cairo against the Congo (2-1), for a collective delirium. For the first time since 28 years placed Egypt for the world cup finals, in a group with Uganda and Ghana as opponents. A relief for the country, that in 1934, the very first African participant in this global event experienced.

The player crowned as the hero of the nation, with five of the eight made goals (compared to four tegentreffers in six duels). The Egyptian people thank him massively for Salah to vote during the last presidential election at the end of march. The defender was ultimately three percent of the votes behind his name. Thus ended the Liverpoolsmaakmaker still at a safe distance from the winner Fattah Al-Sissi, that was good for 97 percent.

Of course, also know the Argentine coach Héctor Cúper (62), which entered service in march 2015 and last year the final of the CAN with a 1-2 lost to the Cameroon of Hugo Broos, that are forefront with Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City)- Ahmed Hassan (SC Braga)-Salah qualitatively less strong than the deadly combination Sadio ManéRoberto Firmino-Salah. In his 4-3-3-veldbezetting he chooses, therefore, for a physically firm society with Arsenalspeler Mohamed Elneny, who as a passeur is supported by Tarek Hamed (Egyptian football club Zamalek) and use Abdallah Said (of the Finnish Kuopion Palloseura). Salah is his brilliant hunches as the talisman of the defensive set team, because Cúper takes it all leep. The South American has experience with tournaments: he piloted in 2000 and 2001, Valencia to the final and Inter in 2003 to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
